Subject: Cymac RTS configuration 

I copy here parts of an email from Jamie with instructions on how to run the RTS on the cymac:

I had to change the site/ifo to be "caltech/x3" to avoid EPICS
collisions with other cymacs.  You'll need to update your models to
reflect this change (change names, site/ifo parameters in the model,
etc.).  So for instance, change x1iop -> x3iop, and update the params
block inside.

daqd is installed and running, although I haven't really stress tested
it yet (no models/channels/etc).  It's running under systemd, which is
the Debian service management system.  You can control daqd with the
following commands:

# systemctl restart daqd
# systemctl stop daqd
# systemctl start daqd
# systemctl status daqd
# journalctl --unit=daqd

controls@cymac3:~ 0$ systemctl status daqd
● daqd.service - Advanced LIGO RTS daqd service
  Loaded: loaded (/etc/systemd/system/daqd.service; enabled)
  Active: active (running) since Sat 2016-07-09 11:22:38 PDT; 23h ago
Main PID: 20827 (daqd-standiop)
  CGroup: /system.slice/daqd.service
          └─20827 /usr/bin/daqd-standiop -c /etc/advligorts/daqdrc
controls@cymac3:~ 0$ sudo journalctl --unit=daqd
...

Remember to restart daqd ("systemctl restart daqd") after you add/change
models.

I've gotten all the RCG components working, but not without some small
kinks.  The RCG currently expects a specific EPICS install, different
than the system install we're using right now.  I've hacked a way to
make this work seemlessly for model builds, but it requires sourcing the
following file before *starting* models:

/opt/rtapps/epics/etc/epics-user-env.sh

So in the mean time, you can start/stop models via the following:

$ . /opt/rtapps/epics/etc/epics-user-env.sh
$ /opt/rtcds/caltech/x3/scripts/startx1iop
